I like nuts sprinkled on salads – peanuts, walnuts, pistachios, almonds. I also like nuts to nibble on whilst having a glass of wine. Spiced nuts take the experience to a whole other level. The interesting ingredient here is an egg white to bind the spices to the walnuts. Spiced walnuts will keep for a while in a plastic bag/container/screw top jar.
A little olive oil
1 egg white
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. smoked picante paprika
Pinch of salt
3.9 oz. walnuts
Drizzle a little olive oil in a roasting tin and brush with a silicone brush/paper towel so that surface is evenly oiled.
Place egg white, spices and salt in a bowl and mix together well.
Add nuts and stir so that they are all coated with spice mixture.
Place in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes – after 10 minutes turn them with a spatula.
